conure won't stop licking me
Help! My conure is driving me nuts. She licks me constantly when she is on me, which is most of the time. Is she liking the salt on my skin (maybe she is deficient in some mineral???) or is this mating behavior or what?
Has anyone experienced this? she also has been pulling feathers out for a few months now, and the vet and I figured that was hormonal/mating behavior. I tried changing her cage around and making it dark for more hours and it didn't help so she had a hormone shot. That didn't help either.
She is 9 yrs old and I've had her for 7 of those years. She is a rescue, and a wonderful companion.
Thanks for any insights,
